Finished up some benches made out of white oak. Used plans from the wood whisperer, and used my domino for all the joinery and finished with marine varnish. For the leg to apron tenons, made my own dominos, the width of them wasn’t right to use two 8mm and didn’t want to go smaller, was afraid of strength since I’m new to my domino.

Awesome joinery!

Even with the domino, that’s not an easy setup!

Thanks for sharing.

Great looking set of benches! They look very sturdy, and I’ll bet will get a lot of good use!

Those 2 look really nice. Its cool to see the joint setup before gluing, thanks for the pic.

I have been wondering if the Domino is worth the investment. Judging from this project alone I would think “YES!”
